The brakes are probably the most important part of your car from a safety prospective. Faulty brakes can put you and your passengers’ life at risk. If you are noticing your brakes are making grinding or squealing noises or if your brake pedal is feeling spongy, you should have your brake system inspected.
We are committed to a safer motoring. Making sure your braking system is 100% functioning is one of our main priorities.
Our qualified and highly trained technicians will inspect, test and advise if your brakes need replacing or adjusting using their years of experience and the “Safe-T-Stop” – our latest diagnostic equipment, which not only measures your brakes but also detects dangerous brake imbalances that can cause your vehicle to lose control in an emergency stop.
What is ABS?
An anti-lock braking system (ABS) is a safety anti-skid braking system and operates by preventing the wheels from locking up during braking, thereby maintaining tractive contact with the road surface.
When to check the brakes?
It is recommended to have the brakes checked on a regular basis, at least once a year. However, if you notice any of the following you should get your brakes inspected immediately. The safety of your vehicles occupants is your responsibility.
- a squealing noise when braking.
- the steering wheel vibrates when braking
- the brake pedal feels harder or softer than usual,
- the brakes don’t respond immediately
- the brakes and/or ABS signals are lit on your dashboard
